Larry Vaughn

The preliminary hearing for a 45-year-old man in custody on charges of child rape was moved to Oct. 11 so the defendant could hire an attorney.

Hamilton County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested Larry Vaughn on Sept. 9 after reports showed his DNA on a 12-year-old girl's clothing from a year-old rape case.

Vaughn is being held in the Hamilton County Jail on a $400,000 bond.

When the alleged rape of the girl occurred on Sept. 9, 2010, Vaughn denied the charge.
